Default Door lock and open operator bars


Hi, I am new so thanks. I have a 1998 saturn sc2. I had trouble with the window motor so I changed it. At this time I bent the bars that control for the lock and the operator thats opens the door. now every time I try put it back together it pops out of its plastic clip and the lock and the door handle do not work wright. I would love any insight on how to solve my problem.

Thank you all in advance for your help!!

Sounds like you are forgetting to turn and lock the clips onto the bars once you seat them in the holes in the clips. There is no way those rods are popping out w the clips rotated and snapped into place unless the tabs themselves are broken off.

Yes they are a pain on 2nd gen coupes , I have one

Please return whether that solves your issue or not.

Then go to the junkyard and pull an outer door skin off a 2nd gen 97-99 sc2 and grab the bars (gently) and replace them.

You can also pull your door skin on the pass side and try to rebend them to match (mirror image) but if you literally reached in there and bent them through the inner panel or something major, you'll be at it for a while trying to get them straightened out to the point they work flawlessly as before

so the new (old) ones also unhook?

problem must be at the other end -- that they are not actuating the door latch, are getting bound up, and the stress is all being transferred to the clip end, which pops open. Watch it very carefully with the door skin off.

From your initial description I could not see how you could bend those bars as they are pretty stiff, but I went with your description.

if they did not provide what was guaranteed in writing then dispute it on your credit card.

Ummm,

Not sure how that would pop the rods, but glad you figured it out.
